Chanel Miroir d’Eau Multi-Use Top Coat Review & Swatches

Miroir d'Eau Chanel Miroir d’Eau Multi-Use Top Coat ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a translucent, iridescent pink with a glossy finish that is designed for use on “eyes, lips, and cheeks” for an “iridescent shine.” The effect is most noticeable on eyes or cheeks (skin) rather than lips, as I felt like the dewy finish got lost on lips and contributed very little iridescence/sheen. The base appeared more translucent, while the iridescent ef...

Chanel Fleur de Lotus & Pivoine Rouge Allure Ink Fusion Liquid Lip Colour Reviews & Swatches

Fleur de Lotus (830) Chanel Fleur de Lotus (830) Rouge Allure Ink Fusion Liquid Lip Colour ($38.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a darker, red-coral with warmer undertones and a matte finish.

A cricket jumper in an episode of Seinfeld

George Costanza would bowl Ian Blackwell-esque flat, non-spinning spin. He would bat at number nine and make regular 20s but never pass 50. George Costanza would frequently be involved in run outs. George Costanza would spend a lot of time off the field with the team doctor in the mistaken belief that he was suffering from lupus. George Costanza would play in some of the more obscure T20 franchise competitions under the name “Art Vandelay.” George Costanza would be a ma...

Side Quests

In yesterday’s article about different types of quests, I defined side quests like this: A side quest is an optional side project that doesn’t directly support your main quest, but completing a side quest could make it a little easier to tackle your main quest or a subquest, such as by building up your skills or gaining additional resources.In a game a side quest may involve doing a favor for a townsperson to earn some extra gold, weapons, or items, none of which you actually need to complete...

What Do I Do about My Brother’s Advances?

From a teen in the U.S.: On a recent family trip, I had to sleep in the same bed as my younger brother, age 14, I made him sleep over the covers and everything seemed fine. One night I wake up at around 4am, to a feeling of tugging at the back of my pants at the waistline, and when I turn to the source I see my brother leaning on his arm facing me. I couldn’t go to sleep after that. I tried to talk to my mother about what had happened, she didn’t even seem to be surprised. She tried to sweep eve...

Tom Ford Baby & Lovesick Lip Sparks Reviews & Swatches

Baby Tom Ford Beauty Baby Lip Spark ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light pink with cooler undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish that also had a high-shine to it. Applied, it looked more silvery and almost lavender-like because of how cool-toned some of the shimmer/sparkle was. The texture was fairly smooth with just a bit of texture from all of the sparkles in it coming through but not in a painful way at all. It was emollient and...

What’s your favorite type of finish for your lipstick?

LUMINOUS!!! That means a moderate amount of fine pearl and light-to-moderate sheen–it should be a little dewy on the lips but between the shine and pearl, it also gives lips a smoother, plumper look. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Why I waited ten years to sign up for a writing course.

The first writing class I signed up for I told myself I could leave in the middle if it sucked. And I told myself it would definitely suck because who would want to be in a writing group if they were letting me in? So I didn’t go to the class. In fact, I found a lot of writing classes that looked good. And I found a lot of reasons to not go to them. Studies show that high performers thrive on feedback. If you want to know what you’re good at, ask yourself: what would you like to hear feedback a...

My writing course starts March 1. And, why I was scared to sign up for a writing course.

Studies show that high performers thrive on feedback. If you want to know what you’re good at, ask yourself: what would you like to hear feedback about? I was so excited to hear feedback about my writing, but it took me ten years to sign up for a writing course. The hardest thing about trying something new isn’t the thought of failure. We can imagine failure just like we can imagine success, so it’s predictable. But whatever is in between failure and success is hard to imagine; fear of what we c...

Becoming a grandmother at 47 led me, as a therapist, to rethink my response to change

Facing ageing and a new role was deeply uncomfortable – but robustness and hope helped me adaptI was 47, shaking and with tears streaming down my face as I held a perfect baby girl in my arms. My body was zinging with oxytocin, the bonding hormone, in response to her smell and touch, those little breaths – it felt as if she was my newborn baby. She wasn’t. She was my first grandchild. My daughter’s daughter. I’d become a mum at 21, she was 26…The following evening, for my best friend’s landmark ...

Please be quiet: my search for a noise-free life

Pinging mobiles, sniffling passengers, desk diners… The incessant noise of modern life never stops – and it’s infuriating Emma Beddington. So what’s the best way to find some peace and turn down the volume?Ten years ago, I bought a box of earplugs. My partner occasionally snored and, at about £12 for 200 pairs, it seemed an absolute bargain. That was more than enough for a lifetime of peace, surely? I ran my hand through the slippery packets of foam slugs; they were yellow and pink, like rhubarb...
